Microbes Grow A Dress From Wine
Micro'be' fermented fashion has microorganisms grow seamless garments in an attempt to disrupt our perceptions about the production of woven materials.
Bioalloy, a research endeavor at the FNAS laboratories of the University of Western Australia, has developed a program that will grow seamless garments through wine’s fermentation process.
Called Micro’be’, the ‘fermented fashion’ project investigates the “practical and cultural biosynthesis of clothing” that they expect will fracture the meaning of traditional interactions between clothing and the body. Be that as it may, their ultimate goal is to create a full seamless garment formed by bacterial fermentation without a stitch.
